KIRKUS REVIEW

This is a clear analysis of the Civil War from the point of view of its land military strategy. Analogies to modern warfare are made based on the theory that this was the first of the great total wars, a war in which troops were mobile and networks of transportation were as vital as ammunition. Detailed in its analysis of specific battles, the text contains a glossary of military terms, maps, charts of maneuvers, and a list of participating generals. Written in a simple but intelligent style, this first book is recommended to school libraries and to readers who would achieve a concrete grasp of what actually happened emotionally and tactically in the war between the states.
